I am new to Box O Books, so maybe I'm missing something... But I mailed four boxes of books today and the books are still on my bookshelf.  Aren't they supposed to come off after the swap is accepted?  Or do I take them off myself?  I don't want them to be requested again!

Thanks, and sorry if I'm an idiot!!

I was a Boxer until last month, and unless something has changed since then the books should be automatically removed once both members have accepted the swap.

Hmm. They should have been removed once the BOB deal was accepted on both sides. I  would delete any that you've sent out and maybe contact PBS and ask why it isn't removing them. 

Unless you are sending them out before they've been accepted on the other side.  Although I don't think it lets you print the address until it's been accepted.

You are correct, Mary, in that it doesn't let you print the address until both sides have accepted, so she can't be sending before then, and the books have always came off my shelf at the time of both acceptances. I'd write in to PBS using feedback, that can cause you some serious problems!

Thank you all!  The books did eventually come off.  Maybe it was happening a little later than it usually does or something.
